"If your fast bowlers are happy and fighting as a team, you can win anywhere in the world and you have a chance to beat any side in the world anywhere", he said. However, the celebrations seem to have just started.

Cheteshwar Pujara was the cornerstone of this India win, with useful contributions from Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, and the youngest batting sensation in Mayank Agarwal. The team was greeted with song and dance and Indian captain Kohli joined in. Pujara, who has an aversion to ODIs and T20s, has over the years missed out on millions of dollars, but it's only in the fitness of things that he is compensated for the value he brings to the Test team.

Indian team also celebrated in the dressing room after they scripted history winning their first ever series on Australian soil. Had rain not come to Australia's rescue in the fourth Test in Sydney, India would have wrapped up the series 3-1, having forced the hosts to follow on. The series ended in India's favour, in which India clinched the Melbourne and Adelaide Tests by convincing margins.

Ultimately, it was the Sydney weather that saved Australia from a 3-1 humiliation with no play possible after tea on day four, when they had mustered up six runs without loss in their second innings.

With the ball-tampering bans on former captain Steve Smith and opener David Warner about to end, the Aussies can begin to stage a recovery.

Kohli initially refused to single out any individual performances in the spirit of the team ethic but when he did yield, it was not man of the series Pujara he chose to laud but seamers Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.

"And you have seen that transition happening over the last two-three years where guys in the team have become more and more confident, about their own ability and the ability of the team as well and it's made all the difference", he added. Yes, even a co-owner of an IPL team can make cricket related blunders and should not be spared; at least that's what Twitterati feels. "Onwards and upwards from here on", Kohli said on Twitter.

"This is an Indian team that will jump over a cliff to win a game for their country", said coach Ravi Shastri.

Installed as captain in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa a year ago, Paine has now overseen seven test matches and won just one - the Perth victory that tied up the series at 1-1. We didn't work on feeling good about the things that we did well.

"We thought had a number of opportunities in that test to get ahead of the game, and when those key moments came up, India outplayed us".

The hallmark of a good team is being able to seize the vital moments and the current team has slowly started doing that.
